Ed Psych-o Bitches

Now I'm feeling guilty.... =(

So we just finished our last real Ed Psych class, cause next week is canceled, then Thanksgiving, then another cancel, and then the final. So we had teacher evals today. And the teacher left the room to go down the hall when we filled them out, and we were talking as a class as we filled them out, and I gave her a pretty bad score for reasons I'll explain in a minute. Then as we left we saw her standing outside the room! I don't know if she was out there the whole time or not, but I'm feeling as if she was and feel bad about anything I said.

I feel like the first and second weeks of this class just gave me a bad schema for the rest of the semester. On our first online springboard test, I got a question wrong because I used the real definition of a word instead of the ed-psych book definition of the word. And that's pretty much what did it for me, and really that's the only thing I've outright hated about this class. Then the rest of the quizzes would often have vague questions where more than one was right, but you had to guess the "righter" one. But for the whole semester, this has basically been the class I hate and dread, and the I've not liked the teacher. The only really annoying thing she does is tell the students they're ALWAYS right. Like, if you answer a class discussion questions, she'll always say "Exactly! Exactly!" even if your wrong, then expand on it giving the right answer, even if its completely contradictory. So those two annoying things have given me a bad taste for this class that just never left my mouth.

And today, I don't think I said anything outloud, but I still feel bad like I exaggerated alot on those evals. I really do feel like she's been infinity nice, and very helpful, and its just those initial impressions I didn't really let leave. At least I'm not Laura -- who refused to fill out the bubble-portion of the eval, and said outloud at one point "Additional comments? SKANK!"

Well now I feel bad, and want to explain my actions or some way, cause I don't know if she heard me or anything. I keep imagining her crying that she's an awful teacher or something, but she's fairly nice. Aw, guilt and shame - stupid emotions!

Childhood Storytime: Not really related to the topic, but it gives back story to the title. So this one time, early 2000's, David and a friend were playing Tony Hawk Pro-Skater something or other for the N64. And the background music said something that mom thought sounded like "psycho bitches" -- and she's like "Andrew, this music, what does it sound like the lyrics are to you?" and I couldn't really decipher it, but after looking at the games booklet -- I quickly found the song to be "Psycho Vision." Haha, we had a chuckle. (Actual name of the song appears to by Suicidal Tendencies.)

Quote of the Day: "No need to be nervous for service, Dorothy Ann!" - Me in Ms. Frizzle voice, talking with Patsy what if Ms. Frizzle had a Circle K. She actually made me say this at the meeting - hahaha.

So ever since I found that "Watch The Magic School Bus online" website, it's been kinda my side-obsession-of-the-week. And I'm trying to find images I always liked, but since there's no screencap sites for it online that I can post to always remember them by. These are from the spider-episode when the general commandeers the bus and presses a lot of buttons in succession.

General: "Does Military Intelligence know about this bus?!"

House Perk of the Day: I do have a huge closet, (for all the skeletons I hide, surely...) which if I had more hangers would hold my whole wardrobe. Sarah's closet is tiny. Sigh, what Will I do for housing next year???
